A planner of everyday life, parties, work events, vacations, and birthdays. You name it, she has planned it! When the opportunity arose to be an assistant for one of the best wedding planners in the business, she jumped at the chance! Learning the trade from someone who has been in the business for over 20 years, was, and still is, an amazing experience. This opportunity opened the gates and Lisa realized she loved planning and executing weddings and events. In 2012 she had the opportunity to start her own business and voilà, Lisa McAdams events was brought to life.
Born and raised in Napa, Lisa has always been a hard worker. Growing up she worked in her family’s paint store alongside her brother and sister, getting the feel for the customer service world at a very young age. From there, she has had various jobs ranging from a bank teller, florist, server, and then landing herself a job in the wine & hospitality industry. For the past 20 years, she has made many friends and connections in the valley and has a vast knowledge of everything “wine country.”
Married in 2015, Lisa understands the importance of having a planner! “I honestly don’t know how people do it, I am forever grateful for the planner I hired for my destination wedding in Mexico,” says Lisa.
In her spare time, you can find Lisa spending time with her family and friends, kicking butt at Orangetheory, volunteering for the local animal shelter, singing Disney songs with her kids, and trying to become a better cook. Lisa loves a good cup of coffee, especially a skinny vanilla or caramel latte, perusing the social networks, watching anything on Bravo or TLC, and there is always music playing in the house. She currently resides in the town of Napa with her husband Ryan, son Hudson (6), twin boys Hendrix & Bennett (3), their Boston Terrier Penny Sprinkles, and their two cats Miggy & Fred.
Lisa is the best!!!
We hired Lisa for month-of services for our October 2021 wedding. She certainly went above and beyond and we couldn’t be more thankful. I am a very type-A personality and she made sure our vision came to life and was perfect. She helped us with questions prior to the month-of as well and was so helpful with any requests we had. She was super knowledgeable about the venue and what we needed, and I was so happy with how everything turned out that day. Thank you Lisa!!!
Best decision we made!!
Lisa went above and beyond to not only keep me calm during the planning of my wedding in a pandemic, but she agreed to take on anything I asked. She was always pleasant and kind and made me feel at ease. My friends and family said they were shocked at how calm I was throughout my entire wedding day and I kept saying, "that's because I have Lisa!" She is so amazing and hardworking and I'm sad our time working together has ended. Thank you, Lisa!!
Lisa went above and beyond to ensure our day turned out perfect. We used the month of planning but she was always willing to help and answer questions well before the month of our wedding. It took a lot of stress away from us knowing Lisa was handling all the small/little details. Her recommendations were extremly helpful. On our wedding day the set up went smoothly and everything looked AMAZING! I would highly recommend using her! She contributed to making our day perfect.
Excellent Wedding Planning!
Lisa is super knowledgeable about the wedding industry and gave us wonderful recommendations from vendors to design and decor as well as following an appropriate timeline that kept us on track with all of our deadlines! Our wedding day was perfect thanks to Lisa's care and attention to detail!!
